Application of Energy Efficient and Energy Saving Solutions in Logistics Centers

Nowadays, it is getting more and more essential to apply energy management systems and energy efficient solutions in logistics centers which may well lead to a significant, 40-50% energy use reduction.
In such buildings electricity makes up 60-80% of all energy consumption, the majority of which is used for lighting. The remaining per cent goes for heating and air-conditioning.
In case of a new logistics center it is necessary to plan the energy management system carefully at the design stage of the building and select the suitable electrical equipments to be applied (e.g.: energy efficient illuminators). In addition, the possibility of using renewable energy sources is also should be examined (e.g.: solar energy etc.) Comparing these practices to the traditional ones expenses can be reduced by 60-80%.
